Contentful was built as a developer-first platform with a "headless CMS" approach that appeals to engineers. However, what Contentful customers end up lacking is a product that solves improved page speed, pages per visit, and organic growth. Contentful gives you an API framework to work with, but leaves you with all the work of creating the site experience. As of 2019, Google is heavily penalizing hastily built experiences that result in poor page speed, as is Facebook. And page speed is crucial for reach and revenue. So if you're on Contentful, check out your page speed and then realize that you could have years of work ahead to fix the issues yourself.
RebelMouse, on the other hand, was proudly built to be a product that actually achieves the goals that CMOs, CEOs, and CIOs need their digital product to fulfill. Problems with page speed and low pages per visit? We've solved these problems for you. Looking for opportunities for editors to have a better experience? We've solved this as well.
The difference is clear when we look at the page speed scores of major brands using Contentful...
...and compare them against the scores RebelMouse clients enjoy.
